Song name cut off 2013-03-22 23:46:44 Reply

I edited the description of a song I uploaded a while back and now the name of the track has been cut short. Has the character limit for audio submissions been reduced since I originally uploaded it or something?

Either way, if possible I'd like to have the track's name changed, since having half a word getting chopped off looks kind of crappy.

The character limit has always been 30, unless this has changed in recent times.

Honestly if it's bothering you that much just change it again to something shorter.

I'm not seeing a way to do this in the project management dashboard that doesn't involve removing the song completely and reuploading it as a new project.

Nope, the last redesign changed it from 30 to 25 and butchered every single submission with a title between 26 and 30 characters. If you look at my submissions from 2008 to 2011 you'll see many of them have been cut off at the 25th character.

Damn shame... The song title was fine until I made a slight edit to the description. Guess I shouldn't have done that.

Oh well, guess I'll have to live with a broken song title.

._. sorry I didn't read everything. But again, making shorter title helps.

Newgrounds is international. Can you imagine starving to death, having your limbs rot off by Hansen's disease, being imprisoned for political disagreements, and have your Newgrounds audio submission titles butchered?! This is a serious!

When I put a title to the song two years ago I wasn't expecting the site to later reduce the number of characters I could use and suddenly chop it off. But you're right, I probably should have predicted the future when naming my submission.
